Truck Accidents: We Get Involved Early To Protect Your Claim
Accidents involving a semi truck, tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler or other large commercial vehicles are often grouped together with other automobile collisions under the same category, but they are an entirely different ball game.
The injuries are often much more severe. You are also up against major insurance companies with extensive resources. They will quickly have an entire team of investigators on the scene with one goal: to find evidence that will allow them to underpay or deny your injury claim.
It is imperative that you have a law firm on your side that can match the power of your opponent. Flynn & Phillips, LLC, is equipped to undertake even the most complex truck accident case in Georgia. With offices in Albany , we can have our own investigative team on site immediately to preserve evidence and protect your claim.
We Know Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
Countless federal rules and regulations govern the operation of commercial vehicles in the trucking industry. When an accident occurs, a thorough investigation inevitably shows that at least one if not several of these rules were violated by the driver or trucking company. You must have a lawyer who has mastered these laws. It will affect the amount of compensation you are able to recover.
Analyzing the dynamics of the crash and uncovering the myriad violations are second nature for our lawyers in determining liability. As former defense attorneys in trucking cases, they know how to anticipate the challenges and defenses your opponent will raise.
Common truck accident causes include:
- Hours-of-operation violations or fatigued driving
- Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
- Poorly maintained vehicles
- Speeding, following too closely or improper lane changing
- Failure to exercise extreme caution in hazardous weather conditions
- Reckless driving
- Driving while impaired
- Texting while driving
- Negligent hiring, training or supervising of drivers
Make sure that nothing prevents you from recovering the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law. Contact our law office immediately to schedule your free consultation with a skilled and experienced attorney.
